I would have tossed those 5 holes ago.  I replace gear when I feel it has passed the point of protection over cost.  I'd rather spend some money on new gear than fear going down in my old gear.  I have some Dainese Carbon gloves that I have had for 2 years, they have been great gloves but are becoming stiff (probably just need some leather conditioner) and they are wearing in the palm and Velcro fasteners.  I'd love to get a new set and replace them but feel these guys still have another season in them.  IF they develop a hole between now and then, I won't wait, they will go and a new pair will find it's way into my gear.  Personal preference really though.

Lol it looks like you couldn't choose the color so you went with both.  Hi-viz though, I'll give you that.  ;)

Ah, but the solo seat is two tone by choice.  Making the rest of it by choice.  Right?  haha  That it is, you can spot the thing going down the road a mile a way.  I toyed with the idea of doing a race replica scheme and adding the full fairings but decided that I didn't want to look like every other squid out there.   So I did the two-tone.  Wasn't sure about it at first but when I got the plastics in I knew it was going to look awesome.

hope their ready for a windshield full of pennies :32: :32: :32: :32:
jokes going to be on them
In this situation I'd go with ball bearings or spark plugs

Actually all of these are bad ideas.  See pennies are ok, they leave little dings in the hood and cracks in the glass but continue to roll onto cars behind the intended target.  Spark plugs will Shatter glass and could possibly send glass shattering into the face of the d-bag that almost killed you.  Equal action, I think so but the CHP says otherwise.  Ball bearings are similar to spark plugs. 

So you may be asking, what is the correct product to send hurling towards the offending car?

MARBLES.  Thats right, marbles.  They leave dings in the hood like pennies do, crack windshields like spark plugs/ball bearings do, yet funny enough, shatter when they hit the pavement, leaving no traces of your anger anywhere.  And to top it off, they can usually be had by the bag full from your local dollar store. 

Win win?

Welcome and nice headlights they look awesome as well as your paint scheme imo

Thank you, I like HID's but was not going to put them in without projectors.  Picked up a headlight housing when I rebuilt the bike that already had these BMW M3 projectors and DDM HID's.  My only complaint is that they only come on when the high beam is pushed, aka they are not dual output lights.  :/


Took you long enough!
Havent seen you in a while, i used to ride a black sv1000 and would always chat SV with you at cyclegear fullerton. Nice to see you here finally!
Welcome and enjoy bud.
Your bike is super easy to spot, its either you, or... whats his name with the '12 black 600rr thats working on the day.
I'll be sure to stop by and say whattup when im in the area again.

Hah, yah yah, I know it took me a while.  I finally got my Sunday's back from that place, that's the main reason I am here.  I want to find more rides in the area and actually get back out on the bike for fun.

The other gentleman there is Terrance, he wrecked his bike at the track while the two of us were there.  He is currently having "race" fairings put on over at Wickoff Racing and claims that when he gets it back he is going to trade it in for a BMW of some sort with all new gear as well. 

Come on in, I won't be there this weekend but will be there sometime during the week I'm sure.

Hi O.C. SV650S, Welcome to ocmoto!

Have fun and ride safe!

Yes ride will be posted on SVR.

Are you a Chargers fan? Gerard7aa has an SV650S that is blue with yellow lower fairings, think he has another bike and SV is for sale...

Ok, I guess I can ride safe, if I have to...     ;)    I am not a chargers fan, actually, I don't follow any sport, I hardly watch motogp as it is.  :/ 

I wish I had the money. If I had some spare money floating around I'd finish a TZ250 track bike I have and would spend a lot more time on the track.  But, I don't, so I spend my time on the streets.  But I'll look into what hes got, doesn't hurt to look, even when your on a diet.

beautiful bike, im jelly  :P

Thank you very much, it is appreciated.   I have poor a god deal of time into making it look the way it does.   I figure if it's going to be with me for a while I might as well do it up nice and enjoy it.

Welcome to the forum.  :44:

I don't ride often enough at all, but I still enjoy seeing it in the garage knowing that I CAN ride it from time to time :17:

That's a bummer. It's always a shame to see a nice bike in the garage and never gets ridden.  Any particular reason you do not ride your sv enough?

Welcome Aboard O.C. SV650S, check out the OCMOTO Calendar for Rides and Events!

Thank you for the welcome and the link, I know Eddimon (the nice man from SVRider that pointed me in this direction) is planning a ride in two weeks and I wasn't sure if he was going to post on SVR or here, now I know where to look if it's on here.  I'm excited to have my Sundays back, it's been too long since I have had enough time to ride for enjoyment.

Ok, so It's not the wildest color scheme out there, but it is all factory painted plastics (even the solo seat, just two-toned with factory paint from a local dealer) and is the only SV I have seen to run a factory two tone like this.  I toyed with the idea of doing a race scheme but I didn't like looking like all of the rest of the riders out there.  Once I got the plastics back from the dealer for paint I fell in love with the scheme, seeing really was believing for me.

Hello all,

New to the O.C. Moto crowd, just thought I'd pop in and say hello to everyone.  New to OCMoto as I may be, I am not new to riding as I have been riding for quite some time. 

A little about myself, I ride a 2005 Suzuki SV650, it's a custom color scheme and (not to brag or anything, ok maybe a little) I guarantee it is the only one out there of it's kind.  I'm sure some of you here have seen if floating around the Fullerton/Orange area the past 10 months or so.  I have been riding dirt bikes for the past 11 years now and street bikes for the past 6 years so I have "some" knowledge under my belt.   ;D

Anyways, a gentleman from the SVRider forum pointed me in this direction and I have heard a little about this forum elsewhere as well so I figured it's time to sign up and drop in.  I'm honestly not into the whole squids at a bike meets so I'll be staying away from those posts, not to say all the meets here are full of squids but bike nights like the one at CycleGear and other venues of the sort are kind of filled with em. No, the reason I am here is because I recently got my Sundays back from work, meaning I now have time to ride and meet new riders out in the OC area.

So with that in mind, hello everyone and I hope to see some of you guys riding in the coming months.

Oh yah, and  :44:
